Jack Baron Painting

My Art from the 1980's

My art from the 1980's

We have been busy hanging all our artwork on the walls in our new home. It is now beginning to really feel like home to us both. It was hard to take all our art down for the sale of our condo back east. I really missed it so much. But now it is all hanging in it's new location and we can once again enjoy it. The top painting was done in Key West many years ago by one of my favorite artists (now deceased) Jack Baron. I have one other painting by him hanging in the kitchen. He was an original to say the least. He painted many things besides canvas. In fact he painted shoes, dolls, high chairs. Anything and everything. And so colorfully!

The two Mexican paintings were done by me in the late 1980's. I still love them. I wish I could paint that way again but it is hard to go back to a style from so long ago. Some artists may be able to do that but sadly, I cannot. Once I have painted through an idea and moved on, well then it is time to move forward.

Speaking of painting, being away from my art for the past couple of weeks has been difficult. I am used to a daily practice. Yesterday was the first day I created any art and it almost feels like I forgot how to paint. It will take me a while to get back into the swing of my practice.

At least now I finally have a studio again. That really feels wonderful. I have so much room I can even have my yoga mat on the floor so that if I need a stretch I can just get down on the floor and do that. I have been getting up really early every day to ride my bike as well. I get out there at about 6:30. Almost too late really!

I love living here.
